Changes in Executive Board Heijmans
25 November 2016, 06:13
In consultation with the Supervisory Board, CEO Bert van der Els has decided to step down as a member of the Executive Board at the end of the General Meeting of Shareholders of 12 April 2017. His decision is motivated by his desire to step down at the age of 62. The Supervisory Board respects his decision and is very grateful to Bert for his efforts and commitment to Heijmans over the last eight years. Until he steps down, Bert will remain active as a member of the Executive Board and will in particular focus on completing a number of infrastructure and other projects.
The Supervisory Board has decided to appoint Mr Ton Hillen, member of the Executive Board since April 2012, as Chairman of the Executive Board effective 1 December 2016. Together with Executive Board members, Ton will work on creating further focus within our activities, restoring profitability and strengthening financial ratios. For this purpose, Heijmans will exploit growth opportunities on the residential market to the maximum possible extent in the coming years and will continue to work on the structural recovery of the Infra segment.
